If you haven's seen "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" (Not once? Not yet? Not EVER?!), then is thy middle name. Vivian McCall just saw it for the second time and was amazed how profound it was the 2nd go-round. Hop to it, sez I. It's about more than you can get your mind around. I highly recommend.

If you haven't been --- you need to go. Cheap books. Lots and lots and lots. Replenish your collection. Start anew. Or just go and look smart. It's on you.

I've been to the Evergreen house, and have seen evidence of Alice Garrett's proclivity towards Theatre, she was very theatrically inspired. So it doesn't surprise me that they could compile a showing of all the playbills and personal notes she kept. The description below bares this out. But at least she had the ways and means to circumvent a total immersion in "a life in the theatre". Trust me (speaking from TOO MUCH EXPERIENCE), it's a rough place to live day-to-day.


Decades Of Change: Alice Garrett And The Theatre, 1900–1952

Sunday, April 4 at 12:00pm to 4:00pm show all dates

Evergreen Museum & Library 4545 N Charles St

This student-curated focus show features theatre playbills and souvenir programs collected by arts patron and philanthropist Alice Warder Garrett alongside examples of her "notes to self" on costumes and stage sets, illuminating how theatre provided a means of self-expression, and even self-definition, separate but parallel to Mrs. Garrett's role as ambassador's wife.

Thought I'd pass all this along, at Hopkins sometimes it's good if the left hand (of communications) knows what the right hand is doing. And what better way to celebrate Spring (which has officially SPRUNG in my book), than to have National Public Health Week. Now go eat something decadent and completely unhealthy! 


Hopkins Nursing Celebrates Public Health Week

Posted: 4/2/2010

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) will celebrate National Public Health Week April 5-11. Since 1995 when the first full week of April was declared as National Public Health Week (NPHW), communities and institutions across the country have celebrated NPHW to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving the publics health.

This year's SON celebration is being organized by faculty from the department of Community Public Health and includes public health trivia, awareness, and lectures throughout the week:

Monday, April 5
Public Health Nursing Careers in the US Public Health Service Corps, 12:30-1:30 pm, Carpenter Room. Captain Lynn Slepski, Senior Public Health Advisor, will be presenting information on the USPHS and its opportunities.

Tuesday, April 6
Healthy Communities, 12:30-1:30 pm, Room 9.
Dr. Brian Gibbs, Associate Dean for Diversity and Cultural Competence, Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Wednesday, April 7
Nursing in a Public Health Disaster: The Role of Nurses in Haiti, Post-Earthquake, 12:30-1:30 pm and 5-7 pm, Room 10. Hear from nurses who served in the SON response to Haiti after the earthquake.

Thursday, April 8
Healthy Howard: One Community at a Time, 1-2 pm, Room 215. Glen Schneider, Director of Health Policy and Planning, Howard County Health Department.

The American Public Health Association (APHA) serves as the organizer of NPHW and develops a national campaign to educate the public, policy-makers and practitioners about issues related to that year's theme. APHA creates comprehensive planning, organizing, and outreach materials that can be used during and after the week to raise awareness.

I stopped by Mountcastle Auditorium and saw Katie Vizenor and Victoria Goode doing a bang-up job with "Personal Information Management". They imparted all sorts of info about sorting through your own digital universe. They covered 'formal' topics such as Refworks & Reference Manager, but also took audience questions that pertained to personal finance, e-mail, bookmarks, and managing your contacts and calendars. I think this class would be tremendously popular if offered at least several times, and at different venues. I love Mountcastle, but Katie and Victoria clearly tapped into a vein that I think half the campus would appreciate. The suggested reading they offered was William Jones' "Keeping Found Things Found". (I've enclosed some info and comments about the book).
